I am writing the exam within the next couple weeks, and I would like to know what the breakdown of the exam was like? Out of 60 questions, how many were 'trick' syntax questions, like a missing curly brace? Do they try and trick you ? ie throw what seems to be a logic question at you, but miss a semi-colon somewhere?
My goal is to find out what the exam tends to concentrate on, so I know what to review more of before writing.
Thanks!

Brent --
Mock exams are your new best friend -- Check out the JavaRanch's list of Mock Exams
Definatley check out Marcus Green's site -- he also frequents the Ranch a lot so you just might be able to get some answers from the man himself.
As for the real thing -- the exam changes from test to test -- so you're not guaranteed to have a particular topic (like threads or AWT) tested more than others....
